I'm a big collector of Internet bits and pieces. Sometimes, these are just scraped together from what I find online. More often, though, they are prizes carried forth from teaching/learning. Since we'll be building these kinds of artifacts this semester, I'll begin with some items from the collection:
After we look over these resources, we'll start our first assignment, which is to find some potentially useful plantings for a thinking about literature, art, and media. To complete the assignment, follow these steps:
First, create a new account on our blog--be sure to use your regular name, not a screen name.
Next, explore the Web looking for items that meet the criteria we have discussed in class. When you find an item or two, select the Create content option on the Web site and compose a new blog posting. Paste in the link to the item(s) that you have found, and then write a brief exploration of the ways the item speaks to literature, the arts, or media.
Submit your posting in the next twenty-four hours. You can read and respond to the postings of others before class on Tuesday.
